MUMBAI: “Makar Sankranti will mostly be lowkey this year, just like the past two years. Although it is such an important festival, I will avoid going over or inviting people to my house this time. My fondest memory of this festival is where my entire family and I would sit together around a bonfire, enjoy the weather, and celebrate the harvest. To add to the festive cheer, my mom would make peanut chikki, which is definitely my go-to Sankranti dessert. I would like to wish all my fans a joyous and safe Makar Sankranti, and I heartily pray that it brings prosperity and good health to all throughout the year.”

Pariva Pranati aka Vandana Wagle from Wagle Ki Duniya - Nayi Peedhi Naye Kissey:

“This year, on Makar Sankranti, I would mostly be tied up the entire day for my shoot. However, I will definitely start my day by eating Til ke Laddoo, my favourite Sankranti delicacy, as it is our festive ritual. My most cherished memories of this festival is watching my mom make til laddoos every morning, and then I would keep munching on those to my heart’s content. I wish all my fans a very Happy Makar Sankranti. Let’s all enjoy our festivals in a safe way and honour our customs. Hope this festive season brings happiness to all of you!”

Aditya Deshmukh aka Special Agent Faizi from Ziddi Dil - Maane Na:

“Every year, my mom makes fantastic sesame seed laddoos, made with jaggery, secret ingredients and loads of love! My day starts with eating my favourite Maharashtrian delicacy called Gulachi Poli, followed by flying kites. My fondest memories from childhood include flying kites with my friends and having til ke laddoos. Our Marathi culture has a saying that comes with this sweet - ‘Til gul ghya ni goad goad bola'. So, this festive season, we have to think positive, and be positive and quit all negativities. I pray this Makar Sankranti brings lots of prosperity and happiness in everyone’s life, and I hope everything becomes normal as before.”

Quotes from Sony SAB artists for Lohri:

Shaalien Malhotra aka Special Agent Karan Shergill from Ziddi Dil - Maane Na:

“I will mostly be home for Lohri this time. It’s my first Lohri without my mother, and it's indeed going to be very difficult. For me, Lohri has always been about spending time with my family, celebrating the festival with near and dear ones and participating in Lohri rituals and pooja. My favourite Lohri delicacy has to be Gajak, Moongphaali ki Patti and Rewari. I wish my well-wishers a very happy and joyous Lohri. Stay safe, stay blessed, and I hope everyone has a great year ahead!”
